. the unemployment numbers are giving obama the boost he needed but romney says the numbers aren't nearly good enough. joining me is former clinton press secretary, dee dee myers and republican strategist, john bravender. john, let me start with you. presumably all republicans are feeling a surge of great excitement following the debate. how much has that been dissipated by what are undeniably very good jobs figures today? >> first of all, i guess i would argue that they are as good as either you're saying or particularly that obama is saying. if you look at the adjusted numbers for july and august, actually the new numbers aren't any better than that. if you look, the only reason that unemployment is going down is they're taking more and more people who have basically given up or are underemployed out of the equation and so what has happened is we're now starting to accept and get excitement over mediocrity. but i will say this. the good news for the president is we're discussing the job numbers today and whether they're good, bad or whatever rather than his debate performance. i think that's actual

our economy forward, as he has for 31 straight months. and 44-month low in the unemployment rate. you know what is really shocking is that you have republicans, colleagues of mine, mitt romney, reince priebus, disappointed to continue the football analogy. they were rooting for a fumble and it's unbelievable that they are disappointed that we have a 44-month low in the unemployment rate. the american enterprise institute said that anyone talks about cooking the books is living in crazy town. so i guess chairman priebeus and other republicans either are dwelling there or simply rooting for failure. we need to continue to move our economy forward. >> shannon: the same grandpa, aei, said that under the president's plan, taxes would go up by $4,000 are they right? >> the tax policy center, which made up of economists from the bush administration and as well as the clinton administration, their asis says when it comes to mitt romney's and paul ryan's budget plan, it would cost $2,000 to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it turns medicare into a voucher system. that's on

dismissing these new unemployment numbers as another sign of a stalled economy. governor romney expected to make comments at a rally in abington, virginia, any moment, but his campaign issued a statement that read, quote: >> reporter: there will be, jon, one more jobs report to come out before the election, that coming out on november 2nd, the friday just four days before election day. we will find out then whether two months in a row of job report makes a positive trend or not. everybody will be. watching that one, jon. jon: and the revisions down the road. doug mckelway in washington. thank you. jenna: doug just mentioned governor mitt romney on the campaign trail today. his event in virginia, we heard from the president about an hour ago. let's go ahead and take a listen to governor romney.

the unemployment rate falling to 7.8%. where does the romney campaign go from here? i'm joined by a republican spokesman. romney has said the president's policies right-hand turn working and the 8% was an indication of that. what's the response now? >> well, i think clearly the number of americans who are still looking for work, the people -- the work force participation rate is still far, far too high, so i don't think that 7.8% unemployment is something anybody, even the democrats, are cheering about. so i think that the president still clearly has a case to make for why another four years are going to be better under his leadership. >> the democrats would say, as they've said on our air this morning, that it is heading in the right direction at least. but normally a jobs number comes and goes, but yesterday certainly quite a bit of controversy over this latest number. some republicans, including former ge ceo jack welch saying that the number may not be kw t correct. welch tweeted this. unbelievable jobs numbers. the chicago guys will do nothing. can't debate so change numbers. does the ro

repeat the charge romney will raise taxes is ridiculous. i have to agree. american people are buried under a mountain of debt and buried under the longest stretch of high eight unemployment in a recovery the most anemic since world war ii for the first time ever median household income has dropped. by a bigger number and the administration itself. they are retarding the american debt to and stopping our growth. gerri: but the g.o.p. commentators have been voting on the romney campaign with advice and criticism. clinton says his comments were arrogant and stupid. do you think the advice will register to change the campaign? >> i have tried to be measured in side -- my comments by have been inside to presidential campaigns. look at my op-ed tomorrow. over the last month there have been nine the polls obama is that 50% in only 20. the average number is 47 mitt romney is 47. the media says the race is over. eight years ago at the same time thereafter 30 polls bush was at or above 50% john kerry was five points behind in "the new york times" said it is too close to call. he is at or above

romney reminds people we have really 11.7% unemployment and not 8.1% that america's best days ca cannot e behind her, they have to be in front of her. i think having a moment of real leadership and maturity and contrasting that with the president who seems more comfort with ellen or the late night hosts than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think romney has to be mature and forceful. yet the idea that it is all in the debate i think that is a little too convenient for the media. >> chris: juan talk about it but also is because we keep forgetting about obama. what does obama need to do? >> president obama is leadion in the polls nationally now and leading in the swing states so the question is how do you reaffirm the existing status quo, in a sense the sale has been made. and he is just there not to seeking any short of dramatic moment. he just wants this thing to happen and be history. for mitt romney i think the problem is and i think this came out in your interview, >> gretchen: chris, suddenly you hear the republicans talking about a choice election. bill krist

: that was mitt romney last night hammering the president on the sluggish economy. but last month a new report shows unemployment actually dropped in 90% of major u.s. cities. how could that be? here to break it down, stuart varney on the "fox business" network. how could it be? >> it is an illusion. it is an illusion. it is smoke and mirrors. and governor romney hammered the president on this last night. look, the unemployment rate has indeed come down. why has it come down? because of the creation of a whole bunch of new jobs? no. because literally millions and millions of people have just quit. they've dropped out. they are not looking for work. they're out of the labor market. in august alone, 368,000 people dropped out in one month. they just walked away from the labor force. that just is in one month. since january of 2009 when president obama came into office, 8,419,000 people have just walked away from the labor force. when you shrink the labor force like that, the unemployment rate does indeed go down. >> gretchen: you think the debate last night, that it was effective for romney to p

the balance will be for romney, we have no idea what will happen the next few days but what we do know is "a," tomorrow the story's going to change again because we will have new unemployment numbers and we will be focused on is the jobs report good for the president or vice versa but very importantly, two things have now happened. one is that the narrative of this campaign has changed. romney has changed it. it was becoming a narrative that he was in terminal decline, that there was an inevitability about an obama victory. that is now gone. we're obviously much more in a horse race. the second thing, more subtle, was that in this narrative of decline, there was the possibility that barack obama was going to open up a big lead, as it looked like he was doing in ohio. if he did that nationwide, he would not only win the presidency big but would get a mandate to govern but would have a lot of senators down ticket that would win with him. that would make him a much stronger president. i think now the likelihood of winning big have largely evaporated and it's likely we will have a much closer el
